Friday February 5th was the NSPCC’s number day.  Like many other schools across the UK we take part in Number Day to help raise funds to support the work the NSPCC and Childline does with children and young people. 

The Maths department ran events at Break and Lunch on Wednesday 3rd, Thursday 4th and Friday 5th with help from pupils and staff.  The event included Guess the number of Sweets in the jar, “Keepy Uppy” football, Snakes and Ladders with a difference and the final event of the week was the Teachers V Pupils quiz.  The guess the number of sweets in a jar was won by Mrs Paulo and Charlie Norgate and congratulations’ to both of them.

The Teachers V Pupils Quiz held in the drama studio was attended by a large crowd of both pupils and teachers cheering on their teams.   Mr Merritt acted as the excellent compere of the event and guided both teams through the questions.  After a tightly fought contest the teams were neck and neck as the final question was asked.  I’m sure no one will ever forget that the height of the Jeddah Tower in Saudi Arabia is 1,008M particularly the pupils who swept to glory with their excellent estimate.
